Helen was instrumental in finding us our family home. She took time and effort to really understand our requirements and with her commitment and honesty, found us the ideal property which matched our aspirations perfectly.
Helen’s courtesy, patience, good humour, energy and enthusiasm made our home search far less stressful than it would have been, given our hectic lives, if we had continued to search by ourselves. Without her help and keen observation skills, we may never have found our wonderful home.
We feel that we received a first class service from Helen, whose knowledge of the property market and schools in the Winchester area has been invaluable.

Helen brought calm and professionalism to our search. She is optimistic and hardworking and with an early understanding of our needs, she found us our perfect property and we could not have been happier anywhere else.
When we came up against negativity from others, Helen’s highly positive approach and encouragement helped us decide upon the incredible home we have now and I am sure we will be here until our children have grown and flown the nest.
Her regular feedback, updates and energy with pursuing leads combined with advice with regard to making an offer helped us secure the house in a competitive market.
We would highly recommend her knowledge and service to others with their own property search.
- Mr and Mrs C Kirwan
Helen has provided an outstanding service. She is very well connected with regard to property in the Winchester area and contacted us while we were abroad to tell us of a property which had just come onto the market and would suit our needs exactly.
We found Helen to be friendly, professional and highly efficient and we are in no doubt whatsoever that we would not have secured exactly what we were looking for without her help.

We relocated to Winchester from Germany this summer and hired Helen to help us find a house. There is absolutely no way we would have been able to find such a wonderful house in our budget or places at 'Outstanding' OFSTED-rated state schools for our children had we not had Helen to help us out. We are very grateful for everything she has done for us.
While looking for a house, Helen always made sure to provide thorough information about everything in the surrounding towns so that were able to make an excellent decision on where we wanted to live. No leaf was ever left unturned! She was always available to chat on the phone and always answered our emails immediately.
Additionally, Helen was an excellent resource from A to Z. She provided valuable information about life in Winchester and the UK, from grocery shops and post offices to home improvement. She went above and beyond the call of duty finding us babysitters and putting us in touch with families in our neighbourhood.
Helen ensured that we found the perfect house and perfect schools for our new beginning in England. We are forever grateful for all that Helen has done for us and would hire her time and time again. She is much more than a relocation specialist - she will make you feel at home in Winchester, without a doubt!

Helen is "Mrs Winchester" - what she deosn't know about the housing market and schools in the area isn't worth knowing.

We had spent a very long time looking for a home in the Winchester area and were about to give up when we decided to give the house-hunting one final push by hiring a consultant.
Luckily, after doing some research online, we found Mulberry Home Search. From day one Helen provided an excellent, personalised service, broadening our sense of what was possible while helping us to pin down exactly what we were looking for. We also got to know the area a lot better, which allowed us to make a more informed decision on where we wanted to live.
Helen's local expertise, industry contacts, and persistent energy and enthusiasm dramatically improved the quality of our search which led to us to finding a lovely cottage in the Georgian town of New Alresford, just outside Winchester.
I would happily recommend Mulberry Home Search to anyone looking for a special property in this part of the world, having Helen by our side helped transform our search from arduous and disheartening to fun and productive, our only regret is that we didn't find her sooner!

We have appointed Helen from Mulberry Home Search to find us a rental home as we had decided to relocate from London to Winchester.
We have instructed her very late thus she only had a few months to find a place for us. Nevertheless she has delivered in time.
She has been amazing throughout this process, undoubtedly professional but more importantly extremely resourceful. She has been able to adapt to our very demanding needs and to the various constraints we have imposed.
We would in a heartbeat re-appoint her if we were to be in a similar situation in the future.
We can only highly recommend her services.

Helen at Mulberry Home Search was brilliant - hit the brief perfectly and now I have a fabulous home in the right place at the right price. If you want a home in Winchester, Helen should be your first port of call.
- John Colley
Helen contacted us on behalf of a client looking for a home in Winchester to see if we would be interested in either letting or selling our house. The homes she targeted in our area were selected with great care, the ones that would really fit her client rather than indiscriminately sending letters to everyone in our street, which agents have done in the past!
At the time we were not looking to rent our home but knew that we would be moving a year later. Helen kept in touch during that time and when it got closer to our move date, Helen could not have been more helpful in providing advice and guidance as to how to proceed. The entire process was completely stress free and her calm and considerate manner was much appreciated. A thing that impressed me the most is that she always sought to find solutions that would keep both parties happy, in the most diplomatic and thoughtful manner. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her without any reservations.
- Testimonial from a Private Landlord
We had been talking with Helen about moving to Winchester for a while which had inspired us to explore the idea of renting to try out living in the city. She found a beautiful off market rental which helped to make the decision process much easier.
Helen communicated very effectively and was hghly supportive throughout the process but unfortunately the rental on our own home fell through, and in the end we decided to sell our home instead, and move down to Winchester permanently.
I have no hesitation in recommending Helen. She is extremely knowledgeable about Winchester and the surrounding area, and has excellent relationships with the local estate agents.
There is no doubt that Helen will take the hassle away from you to look for and find you your new home!

Helen supported us in making a long distance relocation to Petersfield. Her contacts and knowledge of the locality made all the difference. She saved us significant travel and helped us avoid a number of dead ends.
Throughout our search Helen acted with energy, persistence and good humour when faced with our long list of requirements.
We would not have found our present delightful locality and home without her help.
We have no hesitation in recommending her.

Helen completely transformed our house search. Within 72 hours of chatting to Helen on the phone she had found us 3 really great potential new homes. We were moving from China to Hampshire, an area that was completely new to us, but with Helen’s help suddenly all the boxes were being ticked.
Helen knows Hampshire like the back of her hand. She won’t just find you a new home, she will find you tennis clubs, school bus routes, local antique markets, beautiful walks - what Helen doesn’t know about Hampshire just isn’t there!
She is also a lovely, engaging and incredibly hard working lady who goes the extra mile because she genuinely wants to help you.
She took the stress out of moving for us and turned it into a fun and exciting experience. I can not recommend her highly enough. Thanks again Helen you are a superstar.

Dealing with Helen makes you feel as if you’re in very safe hands; I would recommend her to a friend in a heartbeat. House hunting can often be a very stressful and frustrating experience which takes so much time and effort. Helen transformed this experience for me and removed all of the stress from the process. I didn’t have to spend hours and hours looking at properties online, doing research or booking viewings. Instead, I had the most wonderful day where Helen took me from property to property in various areas, showing me around, giving me advice and helping me to understand what I could afford for my budget in different areas. I felt as if I was on an episode of Location, Location, Location! To top it all off, she helped me to find a truly special and unique property that I might never have even considered if she hadn’t shown it to me. It was different to what I “thought I wanted” when we discussed my requirements, but she spotted it and she knew it was special. I took one look at it and fell in love; I adore living there and I’m so grateful to Helen for finding that gem of a house for me!

We got to know about Helen and Mulberry Home Search through the local Winchester Magazine and how lucky we have been! It was an overseas move for us and Helen found us our perfect rental property. Her local knowledge and ability to understand our requirements were excellent. This plus her extensive network of contacts, her videos and a walk through of prospective properties made our search easy and successful. Helen really put every effort into our search and provided excellent advice. We are so pleased to have found Helen and would not hesitate to use her again.
